I have worked as a counselor for the last 17 years, and specialize in working with those who are challenged by changes in life. Whether you have had recent life events that are confusing or upsetting to you, losses, or feel as though your life is missing something, my desire as a therapist is to help you work through the change process and land in a space that makes you feel as though you are complete. I am proud to be a person that people say they feel comfortable talking to and have always taken a nonjudgmental approach to anything someone has to share. We are all unique and deserve an unbiased audience. Whether you are struggling in a relationship, looking at addictive behaviors, challenged by mood changes, or just unsure of why you feel stuck, I would love the opportunity to work with you and assist in facilitating movement toward your personal goals.

Hi everyone! My name is Amy. Everyone experiences life differently, and at times, trying to figure out how to handle these experiences can become overwhelming. My goal is to provide a warm, welcoming, and safe environment where I can assist you in processing and gaining control of your thoughts, feelings, behaviors, relationships, and lifestyle balance. I empower people to overcome the burden of anxiety. I am interested in working with teenagers and adults. My areas of focus include anxiety, depression, grief, family conflict, behavioral issues, anger management, relationship problems, life transitions, stress management, and behavioral activation/motivation. In session, we will learn to identify how our thinking affects our feelings and actions. My role is to challenge you and teach you how to help yourself. My goal is to give you realistic tools to cope with stressors and form a healthy relationship with yourself and the people in your life. I have over twenty years of experience as a licensed social worker working with children, adolescents, adults, families, and groups. I have worked in public schools, community agencies, psychiatric hospitals, and in outpatient therapy. I obtained my bachelors and masters degree in social work from the University of Akron and am a licensed clinical social worker with the State of Pennsylvania and am licensed in Ohio as well.

Welcome to the House of Transformation Therapy Services LLC! You may ask why House of Transformation? After years of working in the IT world I transitioned into the addictions and mental health field following a calling from my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in my middle age. My acceptance of Jesus Christ, began my internal transformation and continuation of being transformed day by day leading to receiving a calling and a purpose to help heal those suffering. This transformation began my personal journey of healing from domestic violence; different types of abuse, drug abuse and much more. I learned in this journey that the Lord uses our suffering for eternal gain. You may find yourself at a similar crossroad suffering with a chemical addiction; domestic violence or abuse; various types of trauma/PTSD; or somewhere on the anxiety, depressive, obsessive compulsive, ADHD, or personality disorder spectrum; interpersonal relationship issues; or challenges with transitioning into adulthood from 18-21’ish ranging from financial, job/career, relationships, moving out to your own place, or learning more of who you are. Maybe you’re a parent struggling with how to raise a child, unsure if parenting skills or other areas are effective or experiencing a child with behavioral/emotional problems. You’ve come to the right place! It all starts within us, the desire to be transformed within… to be happier, more whole, more fulfilled so you experience less suffering and thrive more instead of just surviving day by day. The key to healing is change within and I will be with you to guide, help, encourage and support you on this journey at your personal pace using over 13 years of clinical experience. Together, we set goals in our conversations and use these to develop an action plan to aid in healing, growing and thriving. Self-pay prices: -Intake and Established sessions @ $70 for 60 min session -Scheduled follow-up session @ $60 for 60 min session

Do you feel like something is holding you back? Getting in your way? Many people run into barriers- barriers that keep them from achieving their goals, get in the way of their relationships or keep them from moving on. These barriers can look like anxiety, depression, trauma, communication patterns, etc. This is where I can help! I have worked with crisis services and trauma survivors my whole career; and trauma can look different for everyone! I enjoy nothing more than helping clients identify the barriers that are holding them back, constructing a plan to break it down and take steps towards doing so. I have a Marriage and Family Therapist License in addition to my Clinical Counselor License, so couples are a passion of mine as well.

Hi, I’m Lisa. You know that cartoon of the little dog at the kitchen table sipping coffee while the house burns around him? Is that you? Have you been saying, “This is fine, this is OK” for way too long? Whether you’re dealing with depression, anxiety, or overwhelming stress; if something happened to you that’s making life hurt; if you feel your house is on fire and it’s just not “fine” anymore – I am here to listen and to help. You will find in me warmth, compassion, and an ability to truly listen until you know you’ve been understood. I will also bring to you everything I have learned in over 7 years of working with clients who experience trauma, depression, and anxiety. Together, we will explore where you’re coming from, set our sights on where you’d like to go, and then build a plan to get you there. We will use evidence-based practices to strengthen what’s already strong in you, heal what hurts, and create new ways to thrive. Seeking therapy can feel scary, but I’m about as frightening as a nerdy baby duck. Whatever you’ve been dealing with, we’ve got it. Together, we’ll work me out of a job. You are strong enough, you are smart enough, and my favorite moment is when my clients say, “Yeah, I think I’m good now.”
